"Cancer Treatment"

About: Leighton Hospital

In December 2012 I was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Within 3 weeks of the initial diagnosis I was taken and operated on. I then was put under the care of the McMillan Unit and have been treated both professionally and respectfully. In August 2013 I had another op, again really well treated and looked after. I can not thank all the staff involved enough for basically saving my life. A massive thank you to all
